Sophisticated and lively, Easton has evolved into Talbot County’s “big city”. Its four-block shopping district borders the historic residential area, a mosaic of Colonial and Federal homes, ornate Victorians, and 1920 bungalows. Downtown you will find gents and ladies boutiques, home décor shops, art galleries, antique stores, and a City Market. Looking a taste of culture? Take a peek at the Academy Art Museum, displaying works from Cassatt to Rembrandt. For an infusion of local talent, pop into the local art galleries like Troika, South Street, Grafton, Lu-Ev, Studio B, Gallery 26/Canvasback Gallery, Tidewater Studios, Hobby Horse, Studio B on Harrison Street, and The Little Yellow Paintbrush. For a bit of nightlife, check out what’s playing at the art deco Avalon Theatre, host to classic screenings, performances by national recording artists, local theatre troupes, symphony orchestras or for a smaller performance atmosphere Night Cat and the Stolz Listening Room where calendars are chock full of well-known musical and comedic artists. A wealth of highly Zagat-rated restaurants offer dining alfresco, casual, and fine dining opportunities where menus are enhanced by fresh local seafood, local produce and famed signature dishes.
